Dear Future Family,

If we keep doing business as usual, using fossil fuels, eating beef, turning our heads away from this giant elephant in the room, then we are in for one scary ride. I’ve watched “Before the Flood” just last night, it’s an eye-opener, and I’ve always believed in climate change, now more than ever.

I feel empowered because I am informed on just how alarming this could get. 400 billion tons of co2 emissions have been dumped into our atmosphere, and it’s all because of us. It’s surreal and depressing, but there are personal steps to help. I want to cut out beef from my diet. My husband and I just got a 7 kW solar system for our home. Once my gas car kicks the can, I’m switching to a pure electric vehicle.

Also, I’m writing this letter, because, from the bottom of my heart, I’m unsure of the future. We have the power right now to take action.

I wish nothing but the best for our entire humanity,

Sincerely,

Present Me

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

My dearest Paloma Bear,

I want the very best for you and for generations to come. There is only one planet earth. Your mommy and I will make a genuine effort to make an impact to protect it for you.

 

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

 

Dear grand nieces and nephews,

I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will use less fossil fuels.

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

 

Dear future 82-year old me,

29 years later, I wish I still can ride bike and go some lovely places in nature. Sky is blue and air is fresh, I will be shining under the sun.
